"I am Vegan / Vegetarian / Eco-conscious and I'm planning a travel to Portugal…"

Thinking of you, we decided to do this post so that, when you come to Portugal, you can feel you’ve had one of the best vacations and experiences ever.

This listing is not closed nor complete, far from that. In fact we are counting on you to help us improve it. If you have any suggestions you believe that should be mentioned here, we would really appreciate your contact.

If you are planning your first eco travel, we think these websites might be useful

Where can I go?

If you are still thinking about where on Portugal you should travel to and you worry about the impacts of modern day’s tourism, we have compiled a list of websites where you will be able to find ecologically respectful options that will certainly fit your needs, desires and tastes.

Do you like the beach or do you favor visiting museums? Do you like your holidays to be active or do you prefer to just sit and relax? We have it all in Portugal and you will feel really welcome, no matter what you prefer to do or to what part of our country you choose to travel.

The Green Destinations distinguished the Azores as the number one 2014 Sustainable Destination in Europe, but two other Portuguese destinations make it to the top 10 and another 3 beautiful Portuguese places are among the world top 100. 

In the under listed websites you will find lots of good options for your travel, just browse through them and you will most definitely find what you were looking for (even if you didn’t know what it was)

Green Hotels and Eco-friendly Lodgings (It's a Green Green World)

The World's Best Small Holiday Companies (Responsible Travel)

 

Portuguese worldwide most famous region is probably the Algarve, where the sun is (almost) always shining, the beaches have golden and thin sand and the sea water is at a mild temperature. However, and even though we are, in fact, a very small country, we have such variety in landscapes, culture and activities that you will be amazed.

One of our most unknown, unexplored and still wild territories is the Alentejo, the home to one of the first Portuguese eco-tourism companies.

 

What can I do?

In the following pages you have innumerous eco activities to choose from when visiting Portugal.

Wherever Nature

Natura Algarve

Go Discover Portugal - Ecotourism

Green Stays

 

But, if you already have an idea of where you want to go to, we recommend visiting Book Different, where you have lots of “green” information that it might be useful when choosing your location or accommodation.

 

Where can I eat?

Now, for the yummy part...

Vegetarianism and veganism is universally growing, probably due to a higher food and environmental awareness.

With this, the industry and commerce began to be more aware and thoughtful and you can find several options for eating of shopping worldwide.

However, sometimes, these options are not properly advertised and you end up ruining what could have been the perfect vacations because you couldn’t find a good place to eat.

We have compiled an extensive list of restaurants that are Vegan, Vegetarian or Veg. Friendly. We truly believe you will have good eating experiences while in Portugal, however, if you need, the Restaurante Terra has made a small dictionary for Vegans and Vegetarians. Also, most of the Portuguese traditional food has meat or fish, but among the side dishes you might find some delicious surprises.

Some franchisings will supply you with good veggie and vegan food and they have several stores spread through Portugal.
